Corbyn attacks PM over 'reckless' no-deal Brexit

He claimed Johnson's government is not serious about trying to get a Brexit deal with the EU.

"The only way to break the Brexit deadlock once and for all is a public vote in a referendum", he will say.

After calling for a general election for two years, it is thought that the Labour leader would struggle to justify further votes against an early poll - particularly without the reason now being given, which is that Johnson could change the date of the election and have it take place after no deal. "We stand for the interests of the many - the overwhelming majority who do the work and pay their taxes - not the few at the top who hoard the wealth and dodge their taxes". Whether it is or isn't, the labour movement mobilisation against Boris Johnson's government should build throughout September and aim at a huge demonstration for democracy outside the Conservative Party conference, focused on forcing an election to address the catastrophic social, economic and environmental crises afflicting our country and the world.

In a speech on Wednesday in London, Mr Watson will say a single-issue Brexit election may not break the deadlock in Parliament - something only a second referendum can achieve with certainty. A referendum is the only way to do so.

The Labour leader announced proposed laws which would seek to strengthen worker's rights and boost the power of labor unions.

Corbyn said a general election is coming, but the Labour Party won't let U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson "dictate the terms".

Labour deputy leader Tom Watson will call on the party to back a new Brexit referendum to be held before any general election.

Mr Watson will say that a "Brexit election" might at the moment seem inevitable, but warn: "That doesn't make it desirable".

'No one can trust the word of a prime minister who is threatening to break the law to force through no-deal, ' Corbyn stressed, after recalling that an exit from the European Union on bad terms would result in job losses, trigger food price increases and cause a shortage of medicines in the UK.

"He's trying to trash them all", he will add.

"But there eventually comes a point - and we are very far past it now, well into the fourth year since the referendum - when circumstances are so changed, when so much new information has emerged that we didn't have in 2016, when so many people feel differently to how they felt then, that you have to say, no, that years-old plebiscite is no longer a valid basis on which to take such a momentous decision about the future of the United Kingdom".

'This latest trick would mean delaying Brexit again for up to a year, handing over £250million a week to Brussels for no objective'.

Labour's unhelpful insistence on rerunning the referendum may be an obsolete policy by election time.

"Just as we worked throughout the summer to pass a law preventing no-deal, so we will work each and every day we are shut down to enforce that law".

On a general election, Sir Keir will say: "We have to stop no-deal". They demonstrate that it is the only party with a vision radical enough to tackle the deep-rooted systemic problems we face.

Constituency parties meeting to discuss trigger ballots against serial saboteurs such as deputy leader Tom Watson must carry on even as we gear up for a looming battle with the Conservatives. "A general election might well fail to solve this Brexit chaos". "We have to draw a line under the wasted years of Tory rule and failed negotiations".
